Thailand Honda Jazz CVT Problems + Solution

Honda in Thailand

I#8217;ve been a 2006 Honda Jazz for the couple of days. There is a between 0 and 15kph that is I looked it up #8211; there are 40 people in one southeast Asia online having the same

If you too have this problem it is one of two things:

1. CVTF #8211; You to change the CVT fluid. It MUST be fluid. The fluid is about 900 THB per

You#8217;ll need about 7 to flush your old slush out and get the new slush in there. Pray your problem is this because the alternative costs 10 that.

2. Start Clutch between 0 and 8 kph Honda created a #8220;start clutch#8221;. This dies quickly over a time in start #8211; and jackrabbit starts. Cost? $2,000 USD.

For some the company is replacing them for as they have finally there is a problem. But, if you a pre-2003 model #8211; are not. That#8217;s the way I understood it the people writing in the forums so it maybe off a bit.

The Honda Jazz in Thailand like 20 kilometers per liter if very careful. If you drive #8211; 16-17km per liter. about half what a Raider 150R gets you

It#8217;s also about what a Honda Wave 125 give you. That#8217;s It#8217;s not worth a $2,000+ fix after driving 17,000 km

If you have a Honda Jazz with iDsi engine and haven#8217;t changed your CVT to HONDA#8217;s brand in the last km if you live outside BKK, or km if you live IN Bangkok #8211; go now and do it you lose your transmission.

Update 7/2012:

We#8217;ve 32,000km since the last CVT flush and now the shuddering problem 1-15kph has returned. It is almost right now, but I notice. take it in to get another flush.

is a Honda Service Bulletin extends the warranty for this for 7 years / 140,000KM. The number of the is: 2010-12-018. I cannot find it ANYWHERE since Honda has now protected their service at the one source that used to them.

The full process for flushing fluid and getting your Fit / Jazz to run normally again is:

1. old CVT fluid.

2. Add Honda CVT fluid ONLY).

3. Drive up to 30 kph and coast to zero #8211; about 6

4. Replace fluid AGAIN.

5. up to 30 kph and coast down to zero 6 times.

6. Some have to do a CVT recalibration you can disconnect your for a few minutes. The next few times you your transmission resets. has helped some other with Honda Jazz problems.

The Honda Jazz iDsi has 8 spark plugs #8211; of 4. Honda engineers tried to use up ALL the that hits the engine they pretty much

The interior is awesome. There are ways to fold the seats and get room. The dash is futuristic. The air is and there is enough power for driving and passing.

If you have a Jazz #8211; let me know if having the vibration problem and you did about it.
